La Belle France

Our Newhaven-Dieppe crossing is great for those based in the South West of England. Dieppe is also our closest port to Paris with a journey time of just two and a half hours to the most romantic city in Europe. Going on a family adventure? The magical theme park of Disneyland® Paris is less than three and a half hours away once you dock. If food and drink are more your thing, then be sure to follow Normandy's celebrated Cheese and Cider Route, stocking up on camembert, Pont L'Évêque, Calvados and cider along the way. Start as you mean to go on and enjoy an inclusive meal onboard throughout January.

DFDS also offer two routes out of Dover, one to Calais and another to Dunkirk, but both ports are conveniently placed for your next driving holiday through Europe’s most popular cities.
